Newspaper trying to transition to a Digital company with no strategy or committed managers!

Various (Current Employee) Lowell, MA

ProsSome nice people work there.

ConsNo company culture or values. Most long term employees are merely collecting paychecks and put little effort into the job. Company doesn't have the right skills to make the transition work. Too much financial accountability all the time and not enough time to do the job at hand. President severely lacks people skills, compassion and respect towards employees. Last, too much disrespect & yelling at each other.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve yourself with employees. Show genuine care and interest in the staff, don't just sit in your ivory tower cutting people & expenses all the time. Create a culture where employees feel valued, respected and want to work there.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
